I had thought Mark Whalberg had only had to say GD once in the film, o well, I could very well be wrong.  Thanks for the heads up.  I think The Happening will be R for: Language, disturbing images, some scenes of strong violence.  There is my prediction for the rating.

That's interesting.  I didnt know that about Mark W.?  What religion is he, do you know?  I say good for him for standing up for his values!

Mark Whalberg is Catholic, when I heard about the cursing thing I did some research on him and found out that he is Catholic.  He doesn't have a problem with cursing in movies, as demonstrated by The Departed, only when it involves taking the Lord's name in vain.  Yea, I think it's great that he is standing up for his values.

I have more respect for him now.  Not that I didnt before, but seriously, who else would do something like that?  He seems like a really nice guy!

I have weird feelings about that whole situation. I think it kinda shows a strength in Marks character, but possibly a weakness in his willingness to commit to a role.

I'd like to see the context in which the words are said. What we know of Night is that he is very specific in what he wants. If he wrote the character that way, I believe Night has a legit reason to why he would say that. I think that Night writes lines for his characters in the belief that these are absolutely the responses the characters he created would give at those exact moments. I think having an internal battle on getting yourself ready to say the words is one thing, as would asking Night to change the line because you feel it is not in that characters nature to say such a thing. But to ask to not say the line as a personal thing is a bit weird for an actor... not a normal person, but as an actor.

Interesting.  Yeah, its a touchy subject.  I totally agree with you about how Night writes!  He says them say something for a reason at a certain time. 

I feel that's how the scene with Gibson and Phoenix went when they were sitting in the dark watching the tv.  "Some people see those lights as a miracle, some see them as just pure luck.  Are you one who see those lights as a miracle or luck?"  Phoenix:  "Im a miracle man.  What about you?"  Gibson: "Does it really matter as long as your conforted?" 

You really felt like this was really said at that moment in time.

As far as Mark, I am sure he got to read the script first, so it was his decision.  Night doesnt hire people who dont believe in him or his production, so Im sure something was worked out.  You also have a point about it being another character, like I said, a very touchy subject.

I think Mark Whalberg will do fine.  Obviously he's continuing with the film and he was willing to say it for the film.  I think he's going to be superb.

She's good, hey, wasn't she in Elf.  Am I mistaken.  I'm not sure.

Yeah, she was in Elf. FYI, that is her actual singing voice in Elf! Which melts me, lol.

She was in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, Surf's Up, Sci-Fi Channel's Tin Man, and Bridge to Terabithia to name some of the better known roles.

Yea, yea, that's right.  She is a good actor and a good singer, I think she'll be great for the role.  She seems like the type of actor that would fit well into one of Shyamalan's films.

I am interested in seeing her in this role. Everything else I've seen her in has been a little out there. This role seems to be challenging in the sense that the character's conflicts are very real and honest, as opposed to challenging because the character is on a spaceship, or his Dorthy from Wizard of Oz, or has to fall in love with an elf, etc.
